Buy right the first time

"I have a two man spingbar tent bought new in the late 1960s well cared for untill my dog tore a big hole in the side, took it to springbars repair shop and had it fixed, they did a great job and then some with the repair cant hardly tell the new material from the original its good for the next 40 years , I have three other newer springbar tents still made with the same quaility as the old one ,made in utah . So spend the money for a springbar tent you won't regret it."

My second Springbar

"This is my second Springbar. I had a Classic Jack 100, and I have another compact 2 now, so either camp with friends or camp alone, I can always have Springbar with me. Thank you so much for the excellent delivery. Open at 9am and 9:06 I have UPS notice. I got the tent just before my flight, so happy."

Compact

"Like every other springbar that's made, it's high quality and will last. I've got many different models of springbar and I bought this to replace my old 939. I love the durability and quick setup."
